Lucasfilm and Marvel have revealed the cover art for the upcoming one-shot comic STAR WARS: EMPIRE ASCENDANT #1, which will serve as a finale to Marvel's flagship STAR WARS series.
If you aren't aware, Marvel's STAR WARS series will end with the 75th issue. I'm sad to see the series come to an end, but all good things must come to an end, as the saying goes.
STAR WARS: EMPIRE ASCENDANT #1 is written by Charles Soule, Greg Pak, Simon Spurrier, and Ethan Sacks. Artwork by Luke Ross, Roland Boschi, and others. The beautiful cover art, which you can see below, is by Riccardo Federici.
The official Star Wars website had this to say about the upcoming comic:
Star Wars: Empire Ascendant #1 finds the Rebel Alliance — Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo among them — building up Echo Base on the ice planet of Hoth while Darth Vader tries to locate the headquarters in vain. In addition to acting as an epilogue to the Star Wars flagship comic run, which followed the continuing adventures of our heroes after the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, the special one-shot will also address the fates of Doctor Aphra and Beilert Valance.
STAR WARS: EMPIRE ASCENDANT #1 will hit comic book stores December 2019. Will you add this comic book to your collection? Let me know in the comments below.
